Taking SCDC to the Next Stage


Stonewall Community Development Corporation (SCDC) incorporated in January of 2013 and received its official 501c3 designation in September of 2014. At our annual meeting in July of 2015, we expanded the Board of Directors, created an Advisory Board and established the committee structure that will move us to a new level of functionality. As we begin to scale up our corporation, it’s good to look back on where we have come from and how far. So here is an easy to read timeline that will give you a sense of what we have been doing and where we are about to go.
